Planning Your Move

There are many components involved in downsizing, preparing your home to sell, and move day.
Having a well thought out plan makes all the difference.

After asking you questions about your situation, goals, time frame, and bringing your attention to additional details you may have overlooked, we then create a week by week plan we can all refer to and work with. There really is a best time to deal with various tasks along the way which will save you time, energy, and money! This writen outline helps everyone focus, and move through the process in a calm and efficient manner.

Every project starts out somewhat like a 'jigsaw puzzle'. So many pieces you may have no idea where to begin or what to tackle next. Having a plan helps guide you as to what 'piece' to do first, second, third, etc... ensuring that all the 'pieces' fit together to create the outcome you desire.

Tip #1
Where to Begin

Start your downsizing in a room farthest from the 'heart of the home'. It will be the easiest place to warm up your downsizing 'muscles'.

Tip #2
How to Proceed

Complete one room before starting another. Have boxes, tape, stickies, and markers with you when you begin. Take a photo before and after so you can see your progress. 

Tip #3
Inner Guidance is Key

Notice how you 'feel' when you look at your things not just what you 'think'.  Let your inner voice and wisdom guide you. Leave out the 'shoulds'. This is for you!! 

Tip #4
Helping Your Parents?

When helping your parents ask questions such as "Help me understand", when you may not see the reasoning right away. Avoid using the word 'why?'.
